Convention Presenters on Jumps Led by Coaching Vet Schexnayder
Most noted for the 12 years he spent as a member of the Track and Field coaching staff at LSU, Boo Schexnayder, who coached collegiately at Louisiana-Lafayette and Blinn Junior College prior to arriving at LSU, placed quite an imprint on the collegiate track and field scene. Regarded as one of the world’s premier field event coaches, he was the guiding hand behind 19 NCAA Champions during his collegiate coaching career. He was a key component of 12 NCAA Championship teams and a pair of JUCO National titles, as well as developing a host of conference champions and All-Americans.
Schexnayder has also been a prominent figure on the international scene, having coached triple jumper Walter Davis to multiple World Championships, and long jumper John Moffitt to a silver medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. He has coached 10 Olympians, and has served on coaching staffs for Team USA to the 2003 Pan Am Games in Santo Domingo, the 2006 World Junior Championships in Beijing, and was the Jumps Coach for Team USA at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
A truly gifted clinician, Schexnayder currently serves as the Chair of the USTFCCCA Track & Field Academy Advisory Board and has been instrumental in the development of the curriculum and instruction of the TFA since its inception in late 2010.
